ARCIC Seeks Science, Technology Solutions
The Army Capabilities Integration Center, known as ARCIC, wants to sit down with big thinkers from industry and academia to talk about using science and technology to improve soldier performance, expanding robotics, modernizing combat vehicles and vertical lift, and making other leaps forward in warfare.
Those wanting to take part need to act fast. While the face-to-face meetings at Fort Eustis, Va., aren’t scheduled until Aug. 15 and 16, those who want to be invited to the Capabilities Information Exchange need to submit a request by Friday, June 30.
The exchange is an attempt by the Army to talk about future warfighting concepts and how to create required capabilities. Unclassified and classified meetings may help to explore solutions a company might have to fill the Army’s needs. Classified meetings are available only for industry members with security clearances.
ARCIC, part of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, is focused on capabilities such as soldier performance, vertical lift, advanced protection, modernizing combat vehicles, robotics, cyber and electronic warfare, and cross-domain fires, looking for technological solutions to help meet future needs.
